Compensation for Organ Donors?


The Washington Post’s In Theory section is currently featuring a discussion about whether the US ban on selling human organs should be lifted.  A useful overview is here, and links to several more specific contributions can be found at the bottom of the page (image: surgery).

One response to “Compensation for Organ Donors?

  1. Why not pay people to donate? The usual objection is that the poor will “sell” their blood, organs, whatever if they can make money doing so. So? We should have the legal right to make these sort of decisions. Or are we really the “property” of the “State”? Slaves to our “masters” in Washington D.C.? It seems that at least some people believe that should be the case. These people also tend to be those who believe that “Big Government” is “smarter” than any of us. Given the stupid ideas I’ve seen come of the federal government, state governments, and local governments, I doubt this!
